    How can I rotate the Dell 2005FPW to render 90* CCW? I've looked in System Preferences under "Displays" and I could not find any way to rotate the display.

    I know that ATI has an option in their drivers which lets you do this but I'm using the 6600 from nVidia. Or could there be any 3rd party software which enabled this option?

    You Have To Buy An ATI Radeon 1900GT For G5 Card For $299 After Trade-In

    I'm assuming you mean on your Quad G5. I bought an ATI Radeon X1900 to do this on mine. I now drive 4 monitors on my Quad G5. Including my PowerBook G4 and its rotated 20" Dell I have 6 screens I work with including a 40" Samsung HDTV off one of the nVidea 6600 ports. I have a rotated 20" 1600 high left of my 1600 high 30" with the 24" 2405 Dell right of the 30" followed by the 40" Samsung HDTV connected with a DVI to VGA adapter. I have 180 degrees of 6 screens all around me this way. nVidea won't let you rotate. So the ATI Radeon®1900 GT for PowerMac G5 Express Bus is the only way to get the job done. There's a $50 rebate for sending them any old video card you may have. But the card cost $349 + Tax + Shipping.
